NYC Mayor De Blasio Celebrates New Year in Times Square After Telling Americans to Stay Home

(RepublicanNews.org) – Democratic politicians are great at mandating absurd restrictions in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. They just aren’t very good at following their own directives.

Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was captured on film in a California hair salon in defiance of local restrictions. Other Democrats, like Denver Mayor Michael Hancock and Rhode Island Gov. Gina Raimondo, added their names to the list of hypocrites violating COVID restrictions over the holidays.

New York’s Democratic Mayor Bill de Blasio decided to join their ranks by spending New Year’s Eve dancing in Times Square. Coincidentally, he had barricades and uniformed police officers patrolling the location to keep out other “non-authorized” people.

Nevermind the fact he instructed New Yorkers to stay at home to avoid spreading the coronavirus. Nope, he gets to waltz around with seeming abandon while forcing heavy restrictions on local businesses.

Many of his directives have led to permanent business closures and loss of employment for scores of New Yorkers. In Mayor de Blasio’s world, his own orders don’t apply — at least not to him apparently.
